Dr. Meilin Howard, Dentist and Owner

Dr. Meilin Howard, our owner, Howard grew up in Sichuan, China. An international student and recipient of a full scholarship, she graduated summa cum laude from Texas Christian University. A member of Phi Beta Kappa, she earned her professional degree from Texas A&M University College of Dentistry. 

At the office, Dr. Howard has earned a reputation for clinical excellence and patient satisfaction and enjoys building relationships with her patients in a relaxed environment. Thanks to a wonderful staff and incredible patients, Dr. Howard is grateful to be able to deliver the highest quality of family dental care. 

When Dr. Howard is not at the office, she enjoys spending time with her husband Will – a nice Texas gentleman she met at a TCU football game – and their three-year-old daughter Emily. Dr. Howard’s interests include cooking, singing, hiking, and stand-up paddling as well as classical music, the opera, and playing piano and guitar at home.

Tammi, Office Manager

Tammi Witte joined Howard Family Dental 19 years ago. For the first 12 years, she was our full-time hygiene coordinator and worked closely with our patients. Next, she served as our dental assistant and patient coordinator. In 2016, Tammi took on the role of the office manager. 

Because of all of the roles she’s played at our practice, she has an in-depth level of knowledge about what we do and is always ready to shoulder more challenges and continue her professional growth. 
At home, Tammi is a dedicated mother of three daughters, a loving grandmother of four, and a die-hard Texas Tech fan. In her spare time, Tammi likes to golf, cheer on grandchildren at their events, and simply relax with her family.

Kourtney, Chair-Side Assistant

Kourtney Donaldson is highly trained in the use of modern dental technologies. From digital x-rays to in-office teeth whitening procedures, she is a skilled patient caregiver at Howard Family Dental.

A native of Watauga, Kourtney lives in Azle with her husband and her puppy. For their honeymoon, Kourtney and her husband took a trip of a lifetime to Israel.

Melinda, Treatment/Financial Coordinator

Melinda is our Treatment Coordinator. She has been in dentistry for over 25 years but insurance and treatment coordination is her specialty. Insurance can be tricky with the way they present it to patients, but Melinda is here to help with the process. Getting the patients at Howard Family Dental healthy and a beautiful smile is always her top priority. 

When she’s not at work you can find her on the lake with her family, rescuing or fostering Labradoodles with a rescue organization she volunteers for, or watching her daughter in her latest play or musical theater production on stage throughout the metroplex.

Angie, Dental Hygienist

Angie earned her dental hygiene degree from Tarrant County College in 2010. Her years as an executive assistant provided her with a great background to enter dentistry. Customer service, time management and working toward a goal have all contributed to her ability to provide excellent care for our Howard Family Dental patients. Angie brings advanced dental experience from her work with a periodontal group (gum specialists), mobile dentistry and several general dentistry offices. Her favorite aspect of dentistry is helping patients learn to apply good oral care habits, that make a difference in their long-term health.

Angie is married with three grown children and has two grandchildren. She and her husband provide care for her mom, who lives with them. When she is not working in dentistry, she is involved in equestrian activities or DIY projects around the house.
